What do you mean by "good leads"?
i never played the battle tower, but i believe the normal leads could do good. probably something like

Azelf @ Focus sash
ability: levitate
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Jolly Nature
- ThunderWave
- Explosion
- Stealth Rock
- Taunt

but I'm not sure though.. on the other hand, Uxie can do good too with a memento lead so your sweeper can set up or something

First of all,this is a team,not a lead.And I saw this team on a website.Apparently,it reached a streak of 188!

This is the team and how you should use it:

Shuckle (Bright Powder)
Sassy

Double Team
Encore
Toxic
Rest

Garchomp (Yache Berry)
Adament

Earthquake
Swords Dance
Outrage
Fire Fang

Vaporeon (Leftovers)
Calm

Surf
Wish
HP Electric
Protect

Start with Shuckle
Encore the first move
If a water move swith in vaporeon
use HP electric, kill it
if steel or poison, switch in garchomp
earthquake to kill

I got this one from Yahoo Answers

Hope I helped!

ok, since its 3v3 in the battle tower, I would recommend to focus on sweeping. so theres two leads I would recommend. the first is the trick lead where you trick a scarf onto your opponent, then switch out to a Pokemon resistant to that move and set up. the other one is the memento lead. use memento and die. your opponent will hit like a lv.25 and you sweeper is free to set up while not fearing damage from the opponent. almost any Pokemon that leanrs memento or trick can use this strategy. but there is two Pokemon I think could fit especially good in this role. spiritomb and uxie are both very bulky Pokemons that can take at least two hits so they can both trick the scarf and use memento. they can sometimes hopefully get up Will-O-Wisp or ThunderWave some times too. I believe those sets could do good

Spiritomb @ Choice Scarf
enter image description here
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef
Timid Nature
- Trick
- Memento
- Will-O-Wisp
- Shadow Ball

Uxie @ Choice Scarf
enter image description here
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef
Timid Nature
- Memento
- Trick
- Thunder Wave
- Psychic

encore could also be an option for a somewhat similar effect as scarf, but it doesn't last as long
